I'm going to try selling a few dolls here and there directly from my blog--it will act as my storefront until my website is finished (it's getting there--I made buttons and thumbnails and everything hehe). A fellow folk artist gave me the idea (great Megs think alike).
So here's Bailey the Bat Cat--she really is a cat, but her ears are so far apart she kinda looks like a bat, i.e. she's really cute :) She also comes with her own vintage looking black cat lantern. With her party hat, she's 28" tall and has a 14" wingspan. She's way too darn cute....and I never say cute! Bailey's adoption fee is $155 plus shipping. If you're interested in giving a home to this party animal just drop me a line--and click on the slideshow to see the full-sized photos :)
Off to enjoy some crisp September air...aaaahhhh :)

First, Zinnie hit me with the name game, then the Whimsy Queen gave me the "nice matters" award which, in all honesty, I had to think about for a minute: was she telling me I should try to be nicer?? Sounded more reasonable to me, but nope, it means she thinks I'm a nice person. That's a nice compliment, though, cause all the Pfatties know Christy is one cool chick. Now who should I send this to....?
I'm not about to share my middle name cause it's blech as far as I'm concerned, so I will use Patterson instead.
P is for patience, as in I have none. Just kidding; I kinda do. I've worked retail for the past 7 years and I have to say I must be patient because I've come across some of the nastiest people and not one has walked out of the store bleeding.
A is for artist, which is what I've always wanted to be. Many thanks to Dad and Poppy and the rest of my German artist ancestors.
T is for tardy, as in I stink at deadlines. Just ask Sandy/Sam I Am. If you're still not convinced ask Dana, my thesis advisor--I'm lucky she hasn't strangled me.
T is for tangential because I walk the many-branched path in life and art. One idea or project always leads me to another, which stems off in yet another direction--I'm not one to come "full-circle".
E is for enlightenment, as in I love learning about everything, unless it's math-related.
R is for restless. Like quite a few other artists who played this game, I don't sleep very well, especially as of late. My dreams are so vivid (and often stupid) that when I wake up I feel as if I've been living two lives and have had no time to rest. Otherwise, I'm bust concocting new doll designs in my head
S is for self-righteous. So much in fact, that it can be a fault. I have a very low tolerance for ignorant, arrogant people. This might not be a good thing because in the end, I believe I'm a better person than the person who thinks they're better than everyone else.
O is for oiseau (it's not cheating, I should get bonus points for using French) as in my budgie, Charlie, who keeps me company while I work on my computer. He starts getting crabby if I ignore him for too long, like now, he's trying to yank his perch out of the wall (while he's sitting on it, of course).
N is for not giving up this time. I am going to continue making dolls and do everything I can to get my name out there without being discouraged by ebay and nasty, cuckoo people.

She's big red on the left. Doesn't she look purty now?
Miss Eve, the shy white pumpkin is currently on ebay.
